2021 Graduation Ideas During Covid

While things certainly aren’t the same for graduations in 2021, you can still find great ideas to celebrate and social distance, especially for family members who don’t live close by. You can also put your own spin on things and add personal touches to customize for each graduate. 

These graduates deserve appreciation for all their hard work!

Drive-By Parade

Sure, the drive-by birthday parades may have become a thing during Covid, but graduation drive-by parades can be just as fun! Decorate cars and honk away to celebrate your favorite grad. Sometimes even local law enforcement or fire fighters will join in if they’re not called to an emergency. 

Graduation Yard Signs

Have you seen those yard card signs to celebrate birthdays? Well you can also order one for graduates! Order one the day of the graduation or for your graduation party!

Zoom Graduation Party

So maybe not ideal, but a Zoom graduation party can still be fun. Pick a theme, send out invitations, and play games over Zoom. The point is to make your grad feel special. This is especially great for grandparents or extended family that can’t make it.

Have a scavenger hunt where you have to run in the house and find your grad’s favorite items or throw a pop quiz to see who know your grad best!

Graduation Photo Shoot

Make your grad feel like a star by giving them a photo shoot! Pick a special location or even hire a professional photographer to get the best looks.

Farewell Hearts 

Have you heard of a “Heart Attack” with notes? I know, horrible name. But we’ve been the recipient of notes in the shape of hearts and you tape them all over, whether a door or a wall or wherever.  These farewell hearts can have words of wisdom, things you love about the grad, or advice. Then they can keep them and read them over and over.
